Watch Your Back Martin Brodeur

Watch Your Back Martin BrodeurHe’s hot with ram induction but it’s understood, I got a fuel injected engine sittin’ under my hood.  Shut it off, shut it off buddy now I shut you down.  -Beach Boys

Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go!  Two nights ago, Martin Brodeur earned his 552nd career win.  Two nights ago, Martin Brodeur passed Patrick Roy as the all-time leader.  That was two nights ago.  Last night, Calgary’s Miikka Kiprusoff earned his 200th career victory in the Flames’ 2-1 win over the Dallas Stars.  Big deal you say?  Who cares you say?  I say last night was Kipper’s 374th career game.  I ask, how many games did it take Brodeur to get to 200 wins?  Correctamundo!  Exactly 374 games.  How about that?      

How about this?  Miikka Kiprusoff already has one Vezina Trophy under his belt.  Miikka Kiprusoff already holds the regular season goals-against average record.  Miikka Kiprusoff already won the William Jennings Trophy for playing on the team with the least goals allowed.  Miikka Kiprusoff has prospects.  He’s Bona-fide.  What are you?

This season, Kipper leads all goaltenders with forty wins.  Just like Marty, he is an iron man.  Iron Man, all jets ablaze, he’s fighting and smiting with repulsor rays.  Amazing armor, that’s Iron Man.  A blazing power, that’s Iron Man!  Kiprusoff is on pace to play seventy-six games.  For those of you keeping score at home, that’s three fewer than the record seventy-nine played by Grant Fuhr back in ’96.  For those of you keeping score at home, if there is one man who can catch Brodeur, it’s this iron man.

Public Spectacle:

Peace out homies.  Six two and Even!

Share the love baby!

    whats ur number?

    Brock Says:

    You do realize that Kiprusoff is 32 years old, right? Brodeur was 26 when he got his 200th win. Also, Kiprusoff has the luxury of playing a far more significant portion of his career in the shootout era. That leads to what, 5 more wins a year?

    joshqpublic Says:

    so you're saying brodeurs record is bogus too? 'cause if you are, i agree.

  5. 5
    Brock Says:

    I'm saying Brodeur's record at this point is marginally tainted, but assuming he doesn't suddenly retire or have a career ending injury in the next season, it's a moot point, because he has 27 shootout wins (and will surely break the record by more than that). Kipper on the other hand, will likely have around 60 shootout wins by the time he finishes.

    And yes, the single season wins mark being broken of late is BS. That's one record that should have a huge asterisk next to it.

    Brock Says:

    Regardless, my larger point was the age factor. Kipper got his break too late for him to give the wins number a legit run.

    joshqpublic Says:

    i agree one hundred percent and i'm not in love with kipper. i just thought it was cool he hit the wins marks in same amount of games as brodeur. and even if brodeur does legitimately pass roy, its still messed up because you never know how many so wins st patrick would have gotten.

    joshqpublic Says:

    fair enuff. miikka is getting real beat up this season as well. at his age, who knows how long he can keep it up.

  9. 9
    Brock Says:

    Ya, it's still certainly an interesting coincidence. Makes you wonder what if Kipper had gotten his break at a younger age? Would current SO rules be enough to propel him past Brodeur & Roy?

    joshqpublic Says:

    make no mistake, he is good. the only reason the flames went to the finals was beacuse of him. imagine if he were on those habs or devils teams.

    good god man, hope your not a diabetic, cause youve been at that cake with a purpose with this story. Tell you what, so I dont have to be here all night, put me down for most of what Brock said, then think back to my blog, and finish it all up with some noodle juice and cake and that will do it for this one NancyBoy
